Star Trek 4 is Happening; Synopsis Revealed


Star Trek Beyond is to receive it’s theatrical release in just a few days, and people are looking forward to being brought back into the world of captain James T Kirk and the crew of the USS Enterprise.

One thing that pretty much solidifies the fact that a current film is pretty great is when they announce that a sequel is coming out before the current film in that franchise hits theaters for the public to see. Of course, that’s just what happened with Star Trek.

Star Trek 4 (official title pending) has been announced via Paramount Pictures, and they’ve already released the synopsis for the film as well:

“In the next installment of the epic space adventure, Chris Pine’s Captain Kirk will cross paths with a man he never had a chance to meet, but whose legacy has haunted him since the day he was born: his father. Chris Hemsworth, who appeared in 2009’s Star Trek, will return to the space saga as George Kirk to star alongside Pine.”

For those of you who need your memories jogged, Chris Hemsworth (Thor) played George T Kirk in the 2009 Star Trek film, but sadly he lost his life trying to save his wife and newborn child. So through some event that we’re going to witness in the fourth film in the Star Trek franchise, we’re going to see Hemsworth reprise his role as George Kirk and star along side Chris Pine, or rather, his son James. This will be a very strange and interesting change of events, and it’ll be nice to see what direction they go with this in this story.
As well as Hemsworth’s return, most of the cast is pretty much guaranteed to reprise their roles. And on top of that J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay are returning as the writers, and J.J. Abrams will direct and produce through Bad Robot. Things are already looking good for this installment, now to wait a very long time for a trailer.

Star Trek Beyond is scheduled to release on July 22nd; Star Trek 4 (Official Title TBA) has not yet received a release date.
